With Hillary Clinton looking more and more like the probable Democratic presidential candidate it may be time to knock off the old cliche, can women lead in wars? The answer is, sure, and win too.
History? Queen Elizabeth I: "I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too." She proved it by sending the Spanish Armada back to Madrid as damp kindling.
There are others--Amazon warriors beating up the boys; Joan of Arc; Catherine the Great; Margaret Thatcher and Golda Meir. Mary I of England is another, but she may not be the best model with the nickname Bloody Mary.
And a second cliché comes to mind when we mention Hillary. Chasing has been a problem for Bill, but put that to rest by giving him a well-armed security detail. All-woman, maybe?
